Today is a very sad day. Madiba, you were such a hero in so many ways and to so many people. We will miss you!
Here are just a few of his amazing words…

‘Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of one by another.’

’Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.’

‘A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.’

‘I stand before you filled with deep pride and joy. Pride in the ordinary, humble people of this country. You have shown such a calm, patient determination to reclaim this country as your own. And joy that we can loudly proclaim from the rooftops – Free at last!’

‘We stand here today as nothing more than a representative of the millions of our people who dared to rise up against a social system whose very essence is war, violence, racism, oppression, repression and the impoverishment of an entire people.’

‘I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.’

‘If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.’

‘The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.’

‘No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.’

‘Man’s goodness is a flame that can be hidden but never extinguished.’
